Circle of Security Parenting Group

Circle of Security is an 8-week parent-focused group that helps address challenging child behaviours by improving parents’ responses. The group helps parents better understand their children’s emotions, behaviours, and needs, as well as deepen their understanding of the attachment and security needs of their children.

Through our group, you can expect to learn how to build stronger relationships with your
children and also be affirmed as a parent. You will learn about your own needs and emotions, and the ways in which there is interplay between your child’s feelings/behaviours and your own. You will gain skills and confidence in your parenting and parental responsiveness as you learn alongside other parents who are on their own similar parenting journeys.

This group is well-suited for parents with children between the ages of 4-10. Children do not attend the group. Note: it is important to attend all of the group’s sessions as they build upon each other. There will be a certificate issued to those who attend all eight sessions.

The group will be led by certified COSP facilitator, Dr. Barbara Mancini (Clinical and Counselling Psychologist in North York).
